Subject: The advantages and disadvantages of owning an iPod Touch vs. an iPad

Here is the report you requested earlier in the semester. I am a computer science major and am fascinated with the fast-paced world of technology. Therefore, I’ve decided to look deeper into the specifics of the iPod Touch and the iPad to see their differences and ultimately decide which one is better overall.

Basically I will try to cover the advantages and disadvantages of both the iPod Touch and the iPad. And since they are closely related and manufactured by the same company, I will also focus on key parts such as their: mobility, reliability, and compatibility.

I want to thank the person I interviewed, Eric Gerren, for assisting me with insightful information and demonstrations of the two products and their associated functions. I also want to thank the community of the World Wide Web for providing helpful information that was relevant to my topic.

Lastly, I want to thank Dr. William Rivers for letting me write this insightful report that may benefit someone out there seeking to find a product such as described that will suit their preference.
